Vizlib Gantt Properties - Custom Events, Custom Milestones

Vizlib Gantt now supports Custom Items, which are visual components you can add without opening Edit mode (Figure 1). You simply right-click on the chart and make your selection. There are 2 types of custom events, Custom Events and Custom Milestones

Note: To use custom event objects, please turn off touch screen mode in your Qlik Sense environment.

Figure 2: Add Custom Item

  • When the  screen opens, add the properties for your item. Figure 3 shows the screen for a custom event. 

Figure 3: Add New Event 

  • Add a Start Date and End Date, and type in a Label name. 
  • Select values for a  Phase and select a Group (attaching an item to a group is optional). 
  • Click Submit, and you'll return to the chart where the event has been added (Figure 4). Because we've not selected a group, it's been added as part of the phase. 

Figure 4: Event Added

The process for adding a custom milestone also follows these steps, the only difference is that you'll add a single date rather than a start and end date.
